What you should take from the executive branch of our government openly defying the judicial branch today over Flynn: Flynn's judge knows—as some of us do from our research—that when America hears the full story of what Flynn did, they'll want him in prison for at least a decade.

(2 of 2) That is, the reason the judge issued an unusual order about releasing certain Flynn materials is that he wants America to know the truth. And that's *exactly* why William Barr isn't going to let America see those materials: it'll start off a much larger story being told.

(PS) I'd bet anyone reading this that there has never in the history of the United States been a case where federal prosecutors sought *no jailtime* against a defendant who the judge accused *in open court* of "selling out his country," even using the word "treason" against him.
